*(Via Huffington Post) – A month after the election, President Barack Obama’s approval ratings are at a level he hasn’t seen for years, with contentious negotiations over the upcoming “fiscal cliff” so far not dampening his support.

Obama has an approval rating of 53 percent among registered voters, according to a poll released Thursday by Quinnipiac University — the strongest approval level the university has measured since the summer of 2009.

Obama’s disapproval rating of 40 percent makes the president’s net approval rating the best in over a year.
